Born Dead poster

















We recently told you that Steven-Charles Jaffee’s documentary “Gahan Wilson: Born Dead, Still Weird” will be shown in NYC this October — and now there’s a new trailer


The nearly two minute clip includes appearances by the one and only Hugh Hefner as well as The New Yorker’s current editor, David Remnick.

And now there’s a poster as well (above). Very exciting stuff!

Must see video: Steinberg








This fascinating video on YouTube:  “Saul Steinberg Talks (1967)”

wherein Steinberg, clad for most of the 26 minute interview in madras shorts and polo shirt, talks about art and artists (“Most artists are runaways”), cats (“The cat is known to be anti-social”), and dogs and life (“There is no moment when one is alone”).  He draws and makes a few masks, including one for his nose (“The nose tells too much”).
